sights to see in Cardiff

When planning a holiday trip to United Kingdom, include Cardiff in your itinerary. The largest city and the most populous in Wales, Cardiff in the south of Wales has many attractions that you will surely delight in.

A very prominent structure in Cardiff is the Cardiff Castle, once home to the Bute family. Now more resplendent and beautiful than ever, the Castle stands as one of Cardiff’s important landmarks, a tourist attraction in every sense, boasting of luxurious rooms and interiors grazed with Arabian and Italian décor. Mediterranean gardens welcome the guests to the Castle.

Another notable castle in Cardiff is Castell Coch, which in English simply means Red Castle. Castell Coch is mostly Victorian, and its exterior is often featured in TV productions.

While in Cardiff, make sure to stop by Techniquest, an arts and science museum that offers many fun activities for the young and the once young. Within the museum itself are two more popular stopovers by science geeks and whizzes - the Science Theatre, and the Planetarium.

Take an educational trip to St. Fagans National History Museum, too, and learn and appreciate the deep history of the Welsh. The museum is housed in a manor house on the 100-acre St. Fagans Castle that dates as far back as the 16th century. There are many things to enjoy at the museum. St. Fagans is, as they say, a living museum, with craftsmen displaying their artistry, and a variety of farming activities delighting the tourists every day. The museum is open daily from 10 am up to 5 pm.

Wales Millennium Center is another pride of Cardiff. Referred to by many as Armadillo, the center is spotted right in Cardiff Bay, and is often used to hold operas, ballets, and other musical performances. The stage where it all happens is absolutely world-class. Artists from all over come to Cardiff just to see the stage and the dressing rooms which, needless to say, are luxurious.

Something to look forward to is the opening of Cardiff Story, a museum that will tell all about the rich history of the beautiful city in the South of Wales, that is Cardiff.

In order to max out your trip to Cardiff and get to see the sights you want to see without getting yourself wet, go in the springtime or during summertime when it’s warm outside and when the flowers in full bloom provide a spectacular background that would make your memory of Cardiff truly worth telling and keeping.
